I made some gloves from keys to wear whilst walking home alone at night in cities.
I’d been thinking about my a big part of my life that is ‘walking home’. More often than not I walk the line between being scared and being brave. But I cannot escape the fear and the potential to never arrive. Like lots of people I know, I walk with my keys in my hands, tiny metal make-shift weapons. So I made these gloves from old keys, with the aim of protecting the wearer and warning off any predators. They turn your shadow into a monster. They open doors. They are available for hire, for you to walk at night as you please, enquire within for details.
